Silver Terrace Cemetery


The ravages of time (and unscrupulous souvenir-seekers) have transformed the historic Silver Terrace Cemetery from a foliage-filled final resting place into a dusty hillside tract. However, restoration efforts are underway, and for some, the cemetery's desolate nature adds to its eerie charm. Most of the graves predate the early 20th century, and there are rumors of ghost sightings and even glowing headstones. However, while the cemetery is free and open to the public during the day, it closes at dusk, so ghost hunters will have to keep their fingers crossed for sunshine-friendly apparitions.
